A Kvetch and a Slightly Early Shana Tova Card

Thoughts are a very dangerous thing. Thinking can make you crazy. You know when you have one of those moments when a billion thoughts are swirling through your head and you can't actually pinpoint any thought, so you don't even know what you're thinking, so you can't even figure out yourself how you feel?

Yeah, that's about how I feel right now: Yom Tov is coming and I hardly feel ready to beg God to give me a new year of life, a happy, sweet new year, to forgive me my sins from this past year. School is, well, school and I love it but am innundated with work and reading and hate the pressure. And I find myself running from internship to exctracurricular to class and back again in a dizzying trajectory of motion that even I cannot figure out. And I'm confused about everything and I don't know what I want or what I think or what I feel.

And this was a good day...

May Hashem bless us all with a happy new year filled with bracha and hatzlacha and all things good. (Well, at least I'm on top of things in the Shana Tova card department ;)

I generally try not to think. It saves brainpower, and oxygen, and energy. Law school perhaps was not the right place to go, it seems...hmmmmm

Hey there. I hope you see this; I wanted to clear the air with you. I shouldn't have resorted to name-calling, and for that I apologize. (I mean it.) You are obviously not an "idiot" if you attend Columbia.

I was just pissed to read less-than-flattering statements about my college. I still strongly disagree with you, and in time, I hope you change your mind about Barnard and its students. (I also disagree with the people who left comments saying that my friend and I are jealous of CC, when she chose BC over CC, and I specifically wanted to go to a Seven Sister.)

However, I'm genuinely sorry for being bitchy, because it isn't usually my style. You seem like a very good person, even though we disagree on this issue. I think life is too short for people to argue over this crap.

Peace and love (seriously),
A BCer

Amen, Barnard Woman. Apology accepted, and I too apologize for my resort to less-than-nice tactics.
